My main issues with the first Thor film were not enough action due to Thor being de-powered for the middle of the film and the lack of the trademark helmet save for a few seconds at the beginning. From what I have read and seen of the sequel, it looks like there will be a lot more action this time around, which is a good thing. The helmet never made an appearance in The Avengers and I think that's pretty much a lost cause now. I had hoped the new director would use it, but it hasn't shown up in any of the images from the film yet - and they are taken from battle scenes. It makes no sense to me, the helmet they designed looks cool and you can still see the actor's face, which is usually the issue.
Darkseid seemed to be the perfect villain to use for a JLA movie, but now that Thanos has been introduced into the Marvel cinematic universe, I can see Warner Brothers wanting to go in another direction. Something tells me we will still see the Lord of Apokolips on the big screen eventually, he's too good a character not to use.
